Propelled by Mark Morris’ commitment to artistic excellence, the breadth and profile of the Mark Morris Dance Group and Music Ensemble has grown remarkably. With 18–20 dancers, numerous musicians (from solo artists to orchestras and choirs), 45 full-time staff, and more than 100 part-time staff, the organization is an exemplar for nonprofits, demonstrating outstanding cultural leadership and commitment to community.

As the Dance Group approaches its 40th anniversary in 2020, key investments in ongoing operations are essential. Changes in the touring landscape have resulted in production expenses rising at a faster rate than income, underscoring the important role that contributors play in the continued creation and presentation of Mark Morris’ repertory worldwide.

The Dance Group Fund supports Morris’ art now, while building a pathway for the institution’s long-term sustainability.
